About the Logo

Knife of Asclepius

The “knife of asclepius” logo was created by Christian Jones, MD, by modifying “scalpel” and “Caduceus” from the Open Clip Art Library and in the public domain. The new logo is similarly released into the public domain, with no rights reserved.

Of note, the Department of Surgery at The Ohio State University Medical Center and the University’s College of Medicine use similar images on their seals; while no intention at duplication or homage is in place here, it’s exciting to see convergent thought in action.
